Figure Drawing for November 7, 2011

30 Minute Pose

Once again, the black paper never seems to shoot quite right with a camera.  Oh, well.  I do, however, like the effect of doing drawings on black paper--it really makes to colors stand out and intensifies them, which I like to think of as the "Velvet Elvis" effect (back in the day, they used to have tons and TONS of paintings on black velvet... about half of which, it seemed, were of Elvis).  

This was done with pastel on 12" x 18" black Strathmore 500 paper.
